Namesake vindicated

Sound analysis indicates that Neil Armstrong really did say "One small step for a man..."

I received my middle name, Neil, in honor of Armstrong, having been named after the first man on the Earth and the first man on the Moon.

Update: Hey look, I'm famous! This post got linked to on Slate (scroll down to the bottom).

I know I've bugged you about this before, but ...

So why aren't either of your sisters named Eve Valentina.

Different naming schemes. My older sister was named after family friends, and my younger sister was named after relatives; sometimes she feels like she's about 50 years younger than any other Dorothys out there.

Quite true. Everyone says, "oh, I have a Great-Aunt Dorothy!"

I think someone in the past made the joke that one of your sisters should have been named "Eve Buzz" instead.
